CHEVY CHASE, MD, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Congressional Bank announces it will continue to recognize the Juneteenth holiday and has offered employees time off to celebrate, learn, grow, and volunteer as part of the Bank’s commitment to ESG and Community Action.
This year the United Stated House and Senate approved a bi-partisan bill recommending that the Juneteenth holiday become the newest federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 1983 and will be the 11th federally recognized holiday by the United States government.
“It is an honor and privilege to celebrate culture and diversity with co-workers. As Chair of our Community Action Committee, the support of the Bank to continue to recognize the Juneteenth holiday is aligned with our commitment to furthering equality and diversity in our workplace and in the communities that we serve,” said Anne Balcer, EVP, General Counsel for Congressional Bank. “Hearing that both the United States House and Senate just passed legislation for Juneteenth to be a federal holiday is long overdue recognition of this monumental day in our history as a nation,” added Balcer.
